Wins and Losses are recorded on a ladder to determine a new champion each week. Domination League runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The event site is currently under construction.
The Starfighter Circuit League (SCL) is a competition that involves racing your starfighter through obstacles. The competition lasts 1 month, with a different random race each week. Race times are kept for the hall of fame, and the competition works much like Domination League does as Winners and Losers are kept on a ladder.

AURORA FORCE - A quote from Rear Admiral Indiana Bridger - "We're currently trying to wrest our base back from Imperials in a storyline that came totally out of left field". The divisions of Aurora Force are both operational and organizational. Backlash and Eclipse are the first divisions, with Backlash specializing in the utilization of captured Imperial heavy weapons and Eclipse specializing in the finer points of combat as commandos. Backlash and Eclipse are each divided into squads, which can operate independently of each other if needs be. A third division of Aurora Force in the present-day timeline is Aurora Special Forces, which specializes in black ops. The DareDevils are another division of the Aurora Force.
